    QB is like playing the lottery. Never lose draft picks to get a QB. You never know. Never a sure thing. I'll stick with no mistake Brad.

    Nice read there, and thats one of the reasons I truly tried to look into some of the QB's who are being less mentioned.

    I was happy to see the name Charlie Whitehurst mentioned in the story. I was even happier when he was given a look at by our team last week.

    I'm a firm believer, CW is going to be a fine NFL QB, and he would fit nicely into a WCO type of Offensive team.

    I've been backing him for sometime now, and will continue to back him and will watch his career in the NFL, if he's a Viking or not..

    I truly think he's one of those gems who is being overlooked by most.....


    I LOVE THE SMELL OF VICTORY IN THE MORNING AIR.

    He has some good points there. College QB turing into an NFL QB is a whole new ballgame. Good story

    GREAT article!!!

    I was living in Houston when the Oilers (now Titans) drafted Steve McNair...they had the foresight to keep Chris Chandler (not a bad QB in his own right...when he wasn't concussed that is) as the starter for the first two years while McNair was brought along slowly. The end result...McNair led the Titans to a Super Bowl and earned an NFL MVP award for himself as well. Teams should be more patient with their QB draftees...no matter how much pressure the fans put on them to start them immediately. To do otherwise is to sometimes hasten that young QBs departure prematurely.
    BANNED OR DEAD...I'LL TAKE EITHER ONE

    Re: michael smith article:Best QBs often drafted in later rounds

    I have a good idea, lets trade all of our first-day picks for second day picks, that way we can get all the good players in the late rounds and avoid all the overhyped busts in the first rounds. :roll:


    I m like a Ja Rule poster, cause I'm off the wall.
